Octopus City Blues is an adventure game set in a city built around a giant octopus. So far, so weird. The player character sounds about as odd as the setting, as well as containing an apparent nod to fans of the Franz in his name – “Assume the role of Kaf Kafkaryan, a cowardly middle-aged octopus blood junkie and tentacle trimmer”. Plagued by strange dreams, Kaf journeys into Octopus City’s underbelly and uncovers a conspiracy, which looks like it might involve a cast of wretches and bizarre enough to make you cough up your naked lunch. The demo is available now and there are some suggestions as to how it should be played below.
